Also from NBC’s upfronts, “30 Rock” gets full 22 episodes and network will air live game shows if NFL strike continues
Fans of "The Office" will have to wait until next season to find out who'll be riding herd at Dunder Mifflin.
"There will definitely be a new boss in 'The Office' come fall, but we won't be revealing that until after the season," Bob Greenblatt, NBC's freshly minted entertainment president, said during the network's upfront presentation at the Hilton Hotel in mid-town Manhattan on Monday.
The upcoming finale features James Spader, Ray Romano and Ricky Gervais, but it won't revealed yet if they'll be stepping into Steve Carell's shoes until the fall.
In other Thursday night comedy block news, "30 Rock" may be getting pushed to mid-season, because of Tina Fey's pregnancy. However, that doesn't mean fans of the sitcom will have to suffer through an abbreviated season.
The show is being picked for a full 22 episodes, Greenblatt said.
Greenblatt also revealed the network's contingency plans if the NFL lockout drags into the fall. The network executive said NBC would air "larger than life" game shows in lieu of "Sunday Night Football."
